Pimped my Tundra

I was able to get my tundra the way I wanted it through a little bartering via craigslist. I actually had a big 80 gallon belaire compressor listed for sale. I had originally purchased the compressor to work on a restore project 1977 Jeep CJ-7. I was in a bad accident in March, and have been trying to get recovered ever since. I lost interest in the project after my accident and decided to sell everything. A guy gets in touch with me about the compressor, saying one of his compressors in his shop is dying and he needs to replace it ASAP. He comes by, looks at the compressor, decides he wants it, then asks about the jeep. He then tells me what he does for a living...he works with dealers to customize cars for their customers, wheels, tires, stereos, leather, sunroofs, etc.

We get to talking and we decide to barter instead of making a cash transaction...my end includes the compressor and accessories, and the CJ-7. His end is all stuff for my tundra....Full leather with heated front seats, 3/1 leveling kit, XD monster wheels, Nitto Terra Grappler tires, N-fab bars and all the labor and professional install. Here's the results, I couldn't be happier.

It's a kit, but they completely pulled the seats and covers and reinstalled the leather. They even sewed my airbag tags onto the leather in the same place it was on the cloth seats.

Nice! (was all I wanted to say but this little box popped up and said I needed to have at least 10 characters to post so this should hopefully qualify)
